The term ghost is applied to an apparition, usually of a dead person, that varies in apparent solidity from a mere foglike mass to a perfect replica of the person. It is believed to be capable of returning in some form to the world of the living. The belief in ghosts is based on the ancient notion that a human spirit is separable from the body and may maintain its existence after the body's death. In many primitive civilizations the personal possessions of a dead man, including his weapons, his pets, and sometimes even his wife, are buried or burned with his body. In many societies funeral rituals are believed to prevent the ghost from haunting the living.

 A place that is haunted is thought to be associated by the haunting spirit with some strong emotion of the past—remorse, fear, or the terror of a violent death. Individuals who are haunted are believed to be responsible for, or associated with, the ghost's unhappy past experience.

 Among the traditional haunting manifestations are the displacement of objects, the appearance of lights, laughter and screams, footsteps, ringing bells and the emanation of sounds from musical instruments.
